Aftercare Committee Volunteer
Families Moving Forward
Seeking volunteers to serve on a committee to organize an event for families in AfterCare. AfterCare families are families that are formerly homeless and receive services for the first year after they are in permanent housing.
To help these families, we are creating community yard sales with booths of people who will donate items that would be useful in decorating a home!
Volunteers will help solicit donations for the yard sale and meet every other week with Aftercare Programming Associate VISTA, Caylin Luebeck, to further plan for the yard sale happening in March.
First meeting will take place October 16th, 2020.
